    True to the title, this book delivers easily-prepared yet exquisite hymn arrangements. I used four of the arrangements for a recent funeral; they provided soothing and interesting music for the event while taking little time to prepare. I found the quieter arrangements to beautifully serve as background music during...

    viewings. I'm definitely keeping this volume handy for future reference!

    I have many Cindy Berry books, and I love the arrangements, but was disappointed in this one. This is my first book in the "What Can I Play for...." series. I felt that the songs were too much like playing a simple hymn, and lacked the creativity and beauty that...

    Cindy put into the songs in the other books I have.

    The selections in this book are great and are appropriate for any service, not just funerals. I first ordered a couple of Cindy Berry's series "What Can I Play for Church?" and liked them so well that I ordered the entire series and this book also. The pieces are...

    not difficult but do require some practice. The people in my congregation loved them. I am primarily an organist but during the more informal summer services I use piano and am thoroughly enjoying these books.
